Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt in DreamWorks Animation’s Oobermind


MUMBAI: Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill will star alongside Tina Fey in DreamWorks Animation SKG’s upcoming theatrical release, Oobermind, which is scheduled to hit theaters on 5 November, 2010.

Will Ferrell assumes the leading role of Oobermind, replacing Robert Downey, Jr., who has left the production due to scheduling conflicts.

When super villain Oobermind (Will Ferrell) defeats his archrival Metro Man (Brad Pitt), the world should be his oyster. But instead, Oobermind falls into total despair. It turns out that life without a rival is life without a point for him. So, he creates a new superhero rival, Titan (Jonah Hill). Unfortunately, the new hero wants to be a super villain, too. Caught in the middle, star reporter Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey) asks the tough questions: Who can we turn to? Who has what it takes to stand up to this menace? Who will defend the innocent? Oobermind! That’s who.

"We are thrilled to welcome Will, Brad and Jonah to Oobermind. Together, our all-star cast will set the comedic tone for this exciting new twist on the superhero genre," said DreamWorks Animation co-president of production and president of live theatrical Bill Damaschke.

Oobermind is being directed by Tom McGrath and produced by Lara Breay and Denise Nolan Cascino.
